This has been a crazy week. We were supposed to go to NYC for a few days during the middle of the week. Because the news keeps changing hourly, I was constantly checking the news about the virus outbreak trying my best to decide what we should do. Do we go? Do we stay home?
My husband had to see our dentist for (another) newly cracked molar and had the tooth temporarily crowned on Monday. I babysat on Tuesday and my Little Miss was contrary and sassy. Those babysitting days are LONG days. At one point she told me she could do whatever she wanted. OH MY!
Tuesday night while prepping for our trip, more news came in about our local universities closing and that was the last straw. I called Telecharge to cancel our broadway tickets (and received a FULL refund!) and I called the hotel who waived their 48 hour cancellation policy. So we aren't out of any money. Just sad to not be going but glad to not be going. Now that I see that NYC is in a state of emergency and the museums are shutting down, it's good we are not going there.
Yesterday we spent nearly 3 hours at the endodontist's office for the specialist to assess if my husband needed a root canal on Monday's capped tooth. Not only did he need one they did it right then and there. I read a book in the waiting room while checking the quickly evolving news.
Today I canceled going to the gym, seems to be prudent right now. Luckily for us, our son and his girlfriend are coming to visit for the weekend. I'm looking forward to see them both and spending time with them.
For all you practicing Catholics, many dioceses are waiving Mass obligation or cancelling Mass - so check up on that.
I am planning lots and lots of walks, lots and lots of knitting, lots and lots of reading and painting and I'll be researching an exercise routine I can do at home with exercise bands.
Stay safe my friends!
